Doctrine caching for your legacy code
Agenda 19:00 Arrival 19:25 Introduction 19:30 Doctrine caching - Jachim Coudenys When people talk about Doctrine (or any ORM for that matter), the performance issue always comes up fairly quickly. Besides the fact that Doctrine will help you develop faster, so a little overhead doesn't really matter, there are numerous options to increase the performance of the application. By understanding how the system works in the first place, a lot of issues can be avoided right away. When you have done everything to avoid these pitfalls, you can bring in the big guns: caching. Doctrine has different caching mechanism and since Doctrine 2.5 "Second Level Cache" was added to our toolbox. After this talk, you should know what the impact is of every cache and how to use it. 20:15 Break 20:45 How to survive the endless fun that is a legacy codebase - Frederick Vanbrabant So you inherited a legacy code base, how bad can it be? After actually taking a look at the code you realise that it is actually kinda bad, very bad. Well no turning back now, let's make the best of this. You have a battle plan sorted out, but how will you actually keep going? This and more general tips will be answered. Cause you might not be working on a legacy project at the moment, but maybe tomorrow you will! 21:30 PHP Leuven Flash, Raffle, Social
